So Much To Say...

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

So little time to post...

Everyday I think of things I want to tell you guys, but then the day ends and I have yet to post anything... Agghhh... I am starting to figure out how to manage my new job (teaching) with my old jobs (mom, wife, care taker of elderly parents, wedding planner to daughter, blogger, and neglectful friend), but I have to admit it is taking some time to work out the kinks. I decided I will catch you up on some of the happs in my neck of the woods and try to post one other time this week... That's my goal anyhow.

Teaching is going good... Better then good actually, I love it! I love our students and being even a small part of their lives is a honor. Here is a peek at one of my science classes about a week ago...

This one is candid...
Here is how they look when they know I am taking pictures!
I can't remember why we were all gathered around my desk to do this lab. They usually do them at their tables, but lately if there is a new skill they need to learn I will start them out up front... This is my biology class and I was showing them how to take a culture and make a slide, so I must have decided to start off as a group. The boy in the purple gloves is actually one of our seniors who helps out with the labs in this class.

Here are a couple shots from our stay at our family's camp on Islesboro over Columbus Weekend...

These were taken at the "town beach" on the southern tip of the island... If it looks cold, that's because it was! The first couple days we were there it was in the 60's and nice but by the end of our stay it was in the low 50's to high 40's and chilly. Cold but very, very pretty...

I have been working on this post for several days and just need to end it, so I can post it already...

I just wrap this up with a not so subtle hint as to what has been my biggest distraction this week...

1 + 1 = 3
